What Is Individual Membership?

Whether you enjoy playing socially with friends, are part of a community initiative or a regular club player… Badminton Scotland’s Individual Membership is for everyone.

What Does Individual Membership Cover?

By becoming an Individual Member of Badminton Scotland you are protected against claims made against you for which you are legally liable resulting from any injury to a third party person or damage to third party property.

  • The cover level we have in place is up to £10,000,000 any one occurrence.

My Club Is Affiliated, Do I Still Need An Individual Membership?

Badminton Scotland Club affiliation only covers the club. Members need to join Badminton Scotland’s Individual Membership to be personally covered.

  • This gives them protection of up to £10,000,000 of Public Liability cover resulting in injury to third party person or damage to third party property which they are legally obliged to pay whilst they are engaged in badminton activities.
